Spend a couple of hours drinking a cocktail of excess and revelry courtesy of those overdosing on their own egos and out to lunch in their own lifetimes. Here are tales of million pound recording budgets blown up and out of the nose and of once-revered men brought down by their libidos.
Hear how the Happy Mondays were accused of importing a million ecstasy pills into Brazil, why Shaun Ryder fired a gun into the wall at Dry Bar, how the Who were banned from the Free Trade Hall, what happened after Madonna was pelted with food at the Hacienda – and those are the nice stories.

Ed Glinert takes a walk on the wild side.
